Here below is the full postgame press conference audio for both managers, Conte and Zidane.


Conte assessed the match thusly in his post-game news conference:

“I know it’s not easy to play this game against another great club after only two days of rest, and after a flight of four hours and a half.”

“I know this because I knew the team was a bit tired.”

“But today, I think that this match is very important for us because after this game it’s clear that we have to work together always — without the ball and with the ball — because if we think that we can’t work together when we don’t have the ball, it’s not possible for us. It’s not possible, and we risk to repeat a bad season. Today, I think we weren’t a team in defensive situations. It’s important because in the last game, I appreciated a lot our defensive situation and I told also that we can improve when we have the ball. Today, [we were] better with the ball, but bad without the ball.”
